Get down to your local market when strawberries are in season, buy them in bulk & freeze so you can enjoy this strawberry shortcake smoothie any time of year.
1 cup sliced strawberries (fresh or frozen)*
1/4 cup cashews (raw)
1/4 cup Blend 11
1 cup nut milk of choice
2 tsp maple syrup or honey
1 cup ice cubes
1 tsp vanilla extract - optional but lovely
1 scoop vanilla protein powder - optional for a protein boost
Place all ingredients in a high-speed blender together and process until super smooth. Serve immediately! Add a little extra milk or water if it's too thick for your liking.
